Description - A Dirty War by Anna Politkovskaya

The first account written by a Russian woman of the Chechen conflict, A Dirty War is an edgy and intense study of a country in crisis. Exasperated by the Russian government s attempts to manipulate media coverage of the war in Chechnya, journalist Anna Politkovskaya set off for the front line to report back and keep events in the public eye. In a series of articles from July 1999 to February 2000 she vividly described the atrocities and abuses of the war, both the corruption at the heart of post-Communist Russia and the equally spurious arguments and abominable behaviour of the Chechens. In her woman s view of the conflict Politkovskaya excoriates male stupidity and brutality on both sides and anatomises a war that is splitting apart her homeland. Showing a persistence and a determination beyond that of her male colleagues she has exposed the uncomfortable truths about a dirty war.
